Kim Jong-un has emerged as China’s decoy in South China Sea disputes.
Indonesia decided to rename its maritime region in the southwest part of the South China Sea as the “North Natuna Sea," asserting its own sovereignty in the area. America stepped up patrols in disputed South China Sea waters, asserting its willingness to keep the waterway an open sea.
Banks in the Philippines should see double-digit growth in the next two years ahead as consumers take on more loans, S&P Global says in a fresh report. S&P Analysts Ivan Tan and Nikita Anand write that the nation's economic backdrop is encouraging, with "corporate profitability, low interest rates, and a drop in nonperforming loans." They think "the banking sector in Philippines will grow at 15%-17% in 2017 and 2018, after a 16.5% expansion in 2016." That growth may not translate into enhanced profits, however. The analysts cite the cost of reaching customers with physical banks on the plethora of islands that make up the Philippines.
